The world needs to know about the horrors that took place in Kermit Gosnell’s clinic. This is our chance to make sure that happens.
Students for Life inspired filmmakers to use Indiegogo to fund the making of a made-for-TV movie based on Gosnell and his “House of Horrors.”
Indiegogo enables “crowdfunding” for important projects. Indiegogo.com allows you to contribute as little as $1 or as much as $10,000. The film will cost $2.1 million to make. If they are unable to raise the full $2.1 million in the next few weeks, your contribution will be given back to you.
By donating you are saying that there is interest in this important film, something that will speak volumes to those in Hollywood who ignored this story, that of the largest serial killer in American history.
We need to tell the world that abortion is never safe for women or their preborn babies, legal or illegal.
Please go to Indiegogo.com and make a donation.

I went to the NUFL dinner last night with many of you, and listened to the featured speaker, Dr. Monica Miller. Her talk last night was very good. Her description of her experience discovering abandoned aborted babies in dumpsters and loading docks was very compelling and heart wrenching. Planned Parenthood in Omaha is careful not to be so careless, but they still dispose of these babies in the same way and it is the devils work, as you know. Who knows now how these aborted babies are disposed of or procured and used by misguided medical research. One way or another, they end up as refuse, as the evil one wants.
As I entered the banquet room last night, Dr. Miller was walking toward me and I greeted her and got to chat with her. She is sending me a published article from a medical journal that she wrote about the abortion victim photos and their profound affect on those who see the gruesome reality of abortion. She autographed a copy of her book for me “Abandoned”. I have read a few chapters and it is powerful! During her talk Dr. Miller spoke of burying the innocent babies killed from abortion. She recommended we watch a video she made entitled “Requiem for the disappeared-Burial for abortion victims” posted on u tube. Here is the link
I also spoke with Shari McGee, a local activist with much sidewalk counseling and pro life experience, including jail time in her defense of life. She was emphatic and passionate about her experience in seeing women changing their minds and hearts, after seeing these signs depicting the death of innocent children. Shari said we need to act in faith and in love in reaching out to these women in crisis. She said anger is always destructive and ineffective, but faithful witness to the truth in love is imperative. These women need love
and they need a way out.
We need to listen to these experienced, faithful women like Dr. Miller and Shari McGee who know what is effective in the fight for life. They both advocate passionate prayer, personal faithful witness, loving counsel, and the use of these abortion victim photos in depicting the reality of abortion to not only the women in crisis considering abortion, but to those who work at the abortion sites, and to those who accompany women who have been deceived into choosing abortion, and to the public who see these signs and are immediately struck by the horrific, murderous, bloody truth about abortion. Anyone who has an active conscience, who looks at one of these images of the slaughtered innocents is instantly affected by the reality of the destruction of human life. Pro lifers are confirmed in their faithful defense of life, people who have not considered the issue instantly consider it’s brutality, and even hardened pro aborts reconsider and begin to question their positions. Of course there are limitations in showing the signs where there are children present, but on the front line at the abortion site where children are dying, especially at PP in Omaha where sidewalk counselors have extremely limited opportunity to interact with women intent on abortion, these signs are absolutely essential. Dr. Miller is a powerful advocate of depicting the evil of abortion in these abortion victim photos. She also told me that it is essential that a visible sign be present with PREGNANCY HELP and phone number in large print. She said women in crisis often know that abortion is wrong but they see no alternative. These women need the “wake up” that the abortion victim photos present, and then the escape to freedom, an alternative to abortion, that the phone number offers.
Dr. Miller said the culture of abortion is to isolate and individualize women rather than include them in a communion with spouse, family or community, selfishly empowering them to destroy life rather than nurture it in family, as she was created. “Abortion is the disintegration of human communion”. Dr. Miller ended her talk with a plea for us to remain strong, to be thankful for our community, and to prayerfully seek to take action that will affect in some way the culture of death, that we live and strengthen and continue to defend life.
Father Michael Voithofer among many other priests, Liz Miller, Ann Marie Bowen, Monica Maides, Mary Jane Ziola, Larry Guerra, and so many other loyal activists have repeatedly and at times desperately asked for more prayer warriors and more sidewalk
counselors. They recognize the importance of witness at the abortion sites, because innocent lives are saved and hearts are converted to life when the faithful come to prayerfully witness to the truth of the gospel, and to the truth about the reality of abortion. It is impossible to advance a pro-life movement without faith, without God, without the Good News of the Gospel message. Of course, not everyone can come to the abortion site, but we can all do something. We can all do a little bit more, pray a little more, sacrifice a
little more, give a little more to end abortion in our community. We can inform those around us, and invite our friends to join us in prayer or participate in some way in defending life. We can affect the culture of death by witnessing to the truth of the Gospel in our parishes, where our brothers and sisters are indifferent or too busy with their own lives to notice that the world that we live in wants us to dispose of murdered innocents like common refuse. We can charitably witness to the truth, and knock down the walls of misunderstanding and lies built up by Planned Parenthood, who wants us to keep their secret about the bloody reality of the wanton death and destruction of precious human life.
Dr. Miller said when we defend life, especially in prayerful witness at the abortion sites, we do the most important work on the earth!

Testimony given by Maris Bentley before the Nebraska Legislature Judiciary Committee November 1, 2013
My name is Maris Bentley. I reside in Omaha. I am a retired teacher and school counselor. My husband Dave and I have been married for 37 years. We have 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren.
I had originally intended to go through this document titled “10 reasons why homosexual marriage is harmful and must be opposed,” but after prayer and reflection I decided that doing so would probably just be a waste of time.
During his lengthy and numerous speeches, Senator Chambers recounted the story of the “Three Billy Goats Gruff,” and as he was speaking, I was recalling another childhood story that seems very appropriate. The name of the story is “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” I’m sure you all remember that story. It’s the story about people who can’t or won’t see the truth even when it is parading around naked right in front of them. What many of you seem unable to see is the truth about marriage—what it is and what it isn’t.
It seems to me that those of you intent upon moving forward with this travesty will not be persuaded by arguments related to history or natural law or morality or public health or even what is in the best interests of future generations of Nebraskans. You aren’t even listening to the more the 70% of Nebraska voters, like myself, who voted in favor of DOMA 13 years ago.
Instead you hear the voices of those who claim this is a civil rights issue, and that marriage must be redefined to order to bring about some false notion of equality. Our Declaration of Independence says that “all men are created equal;” it does not say that all behaviors are equal. We know they are not. And that is what this debate on marriage is based on—the forced acceptance and promotion of a behavior that has been considered from the beginning of human history to be unnatural and immoral, not to mention unhealthy.
No, I am not a homophobe, even though Senator Chambers likes to call me, and others who agree with me, these names. I am not afraid of homosexuals. Neither am I hateful or a bigot. I do not hate any human being. I want to see all people treated with respect and dignity, no matter whether I approve of their behavior or not.
I try to live my life following my Lord and Savior, and that means that I am to love my neighbor as I love myself. And what about love?
Those who identify themselves by their sexual behavior would also have us believe that this is about love, but it is not. No one is denying anyone the ability to love another person. But what is love, after all? It is not a feeling, though feelings, good and bad, are part of every human experience. Love is not sex, there are many people we love who we do not have sex with. Ultimately, love is a choice—a choice that entails sacrifice, a willingness to put aside our egos and our selfishness for the good of the beloved. Make no mistake, this debate is really all about sexual freedom—the freedom to have a sexual relationship with anyone we want regardless of the consequences to ourselves and others. We’ve already seen the destruction to marriage and family brought about by the Sexual Revolution The sexual freedom that is being promoted as “marriage equality” is the antithesis of love, and it will only serve to further destroy the bedrock of a stable society—the family.
